DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which prevents email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is generated based on a private key that’s available on the outgoing mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This method will boost your worldwide web safety considerably and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is genuine. When you send emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be bogus may either be marked as such or may never reach the recipient’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is enabled by default for all domains that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you will not have to do anything on your end to activate it. The sole requirement is that the particular domain should be hosted in a web hosting account on our platform using our NS and MX resource records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our email servers. The private cryptographic key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which includes the public key, will be published to the global DNS system automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this option. The DKIM authentication system will allow you to send out credible messages, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target viewers, while unsolicited third parties will not be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you select one of the semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM protection service with any domain name that you register through your brand-new account without any manual intervention, as our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform will set up all the obligatory records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send a new email message, it will carry our platform’s digital signature. The number of junk email messages continues to grow every year and quite frequently fake addresses are used, but if you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues won’t need to bother about that.
